But all sorts of doings! So first, the chimney did indeed come down. Video to prove it, starring Uncle A, my brother Joey, and Gavin shooting film between knocking down brick:
Gavin and I spent an insane 2 days cleaning from attic to basement (there is always, ALWAYS a mess, not matter how much you clean) and stacking all the old remaining brick so we could save it for use outside in landscaping later (much later- currently our backyard looks like the jungles of Vietnam). This was done in early July, since Gav's mom was out for our baby boy's first birthday party! See how we cram work and fun into one insane package? Every mosquito in Long Island turned out to help us stack bricks. Thank you, mosquitos.

|Notice that poor Gavin is sweating like a goat at the beach...|
|The only way to tell how huge this room now seems is wee Gavin way at the other side...|
And wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles, the Taper done sheet rocked the bathroom!! WE HAVE A ROOM WITH WALLS! And even better, he took such pride in his work that I have the most flawless bathroom walls in the universe.

And this week I call and order sheetrock for the whole rest o' the house. We hope to have it delivered next week and (pleaseGodplease) have walls going up the last week of August!! FINGERS SOOOO CROSSED!
